Heyooo, I already started a project thread on the Wifes mini, but thought Id say hey.  Not a fan boy so Ive got an ineresting collection of cars.  Was into volvos for years, has a number of 240s and 740s....242, 245 I turned into a truck, 765's even had a 740gle, in the states that was the 16valve N/A with a manual trans, that was a fun beast.  My daily is a W124 benz wagon, 1995 last year with a C36 AMG engine swap and sportline suspension swap.  Not a speed demon, kinda a heavy pig but a solid driver I enjoy.  And I get lots of comments on it, go figure haha.

 

I hav a 59 bug eye sprite with a 1275 that I just bolted a turbo to.  Perfect canadate to as the motor was a late smog motor, so low compression, perfect for boost.  5 speed datsun gear box, VTO wheels and a work in progress.  Its gettin there, fun as hell.  Shes my beasty.  Mom has a 74 Fiat X1/9 in the line to be gone through.  Gonna get a 1500 with the euro head and cam, bigger carb, little head work.  100hp at the crank is the goal, and it will get A/C.  Dad has an 82 Olds custom cruiser which here is a full size rear wheel drive GM B-body wagon.  Complete with the original interior wood grain paneling and wire wheel hub caps.  Layed gently in the engine compartment is an LQ4, a 6 litre LS v8 with a 4L80e trans behind it.  Bone stock on the outside, decent shocks and all the oher things gone through.  Great cruiser and its got the powe to back it up now.  Dont have a pic of the fiat for some reason haha..

 

Oh and how to forum points work?
